Our Mission

Providing high-quality, culturally-appropriate, person-centered services
through an integrated behavioral health network.

Washington State legislation has changed the way behavioral health services will be purchased for Apple Health/Medicaid enrollees. By 2020, all BHO regions will transition contracting and oversight of behavioral health services to Managed Care Organizations as part of the shift to fully integrated managed care. Chelan, Douglas, and Grant county representatives voted to become “mid-adopters” of this change. At the close of 2017 NCWBH will dissolve and a network system of Managed Care Organizations and an Administrative Service Organization will maintain services through the region under Washington State Healthcare Authority.

This shift is to provide whole-person care, meaning behavioral healthcare is coordinated with medical care. The primary change will be how services are paid for on behalf of the person. Access to services with remain the same, and all previously available services be covered by the Managed Care Organization of choice by the enrollee starting January 1, 2018. All Medicaid enrollees will receive information detailing the available plans from Amerigroup, Coordinated Care, and Molina. Enrollees currently on plans through Community Health Plan of Washington and United Healthcare of Washington will need to select a new plan. If the individual does not choose one, they will be placed on an available plan so there will be no interruption to Medicaid coverage. Beacon Health will oversee the crisis services system and other non-Medicaid funding.
